Bounce is a 2002 Arabian Gelding. He was diagnosed with alopecia, an autoimmune disease causing hair loss, in April 2009. This is critical because a horse living in Minnesota cannot survive without its hair. There is no known treatment for alopecia in traditional medicine, so I have decided to try a different approach by contacting Dr. Joseph Thomas, Ph.D of For the Love of the Horse. Dr. Thomas is a medical research scientist and Chinese herbalist. I have created this blog to chronicle the journey and its hopeful end.
I am a transplanted city-dweller, who gave up the pavement for pastures and coffee shops for feed stores. Along the way I became a breeder of some really talented and wonderful horses. As well as having horses, I have a husband, an adult son and a couple of dogs. My interests are fairly simple: horses, politics, food and reading. And some gardening. I rattle on about all of these interests with some regularity here.
